It makes a number of pledges including: 1) promoting renewable energies and other low-carbon solutions through the Advanced Energy Technology Platform, the establishment of the National New?Energy Development Centre in Taranaki. 2) investing in sustainable land use (Productive and Sustainable Land Use Package), through a NZ$229.2 million package for projects to protect and restore at-risk waterways and wetlands and research funding to help the agricultural sector. 3) reducing greenhouse gases in the transport sector, especially by investing NZ$1 billion in KiwiRail. 4) help the private sector to transition to a low-carbon economy with a NZ$106 million grant.
